We would like to take this opportunity to let the beekeeping community know that after almost 20 years selling beekeeping supplies, we have reached the decision that we will not be continuing on with this in 2016.
This decision was not taken lightly, as we value and enjoy the relationships that have developed over the years with our customers. As most of you know, we sold the beekeeping supply portion of our business, and the name “Country Fields” to Mr. Tim Purdy of Waverley, N.S., in June of 2015. For the past 6 months, we have been selling the bee supplies for Tim from our Upper Coverdale location. In looking at the year ahead however, we felt that to carry on with the bee supplies would keep us busier than we wish to be at this stage in life.
As we are not ready to retire fully as yet, and wish to remain active in the beekeeping industry, we have kept part of our business, and are operating under the name “Doré Products. Ltd.”
We are selling glass and plastic containers (jars and pails, etc.), wholesale and retail honey, and in spring/summer of 2016 we will be selling nucleus colonies and queens, as well as a few other miscellaneous items.
Although we will be closed for holidays over Christmas and for the month of January, we will re-open the first week of February, 2016. Our web site, www.doreproducts.com is partially developed now, please check there for updates to hours, etc. We are available by phone at 506-387-6804, or by e-mail at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org , and we are in the same location we always have been at 1848 Route 112, Upper Coverdale, N.B.
We thank you all for your support over these past years, and will look forward to seeing you in the new year.
Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to You All
